Wipers are acting funny. Jerking and stopping half way

Customer Question

Wipers are acting funny. Jerking and stopping half way through clear the windshield.
JA: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?
Customer: I'm assuming there's power as they do move. Picking my parents up at the airport later and it's pouring so I need to get them working properly
JA: What is the model/year of your Buick?
Customer: 2013 Encore
JA: Are you fixing your Encore yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Haven't tried anything yet. Read the manual. Thinking I may check the fuse but not sure where to find it
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Nope. Just need to know if I have to take it into the dealership before I head to the airport

Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

The first thing to do is check the system with a scan tool in bidirectional mode to see if it's the wiper module or the wiper motor. If it's the module, a re-flash of the computer may be needed too. If it's just the motor, it's just plug and play.

Thanks, Ron
